Here are some photos from our tramp last Sunday. Thirteen of us travelled to Halls Farm and ascended Gold Creek Ridge in perfect weather. Eleven went down to the hut, 8 returned back up to the ridge while 3 proceeded down Gold Creek. There were no major obstacles in the creek and the creek party had just arrived back at the truck when the last of the others returned at about 3.15.
On the weekend of 21 & 22 November a group of 7 headed in to the northern Kaweka Range to the Middle Hill carpark. From here they all tramped up past Middle Hill Hut and up towards Whetu. Three turned back to stay the night at Middle Hill hut while the remaining 4 carried on over Whetu and down to Ballards for the night. On Sunday the Ballard people came out via Makino Hut while the Middle Hill crew travelled to the end of the road and walked part way to Te Puia Lodge. Here are some of Robyn & Colin’s photos
